Instructions:

  1. Prepare Your Ingredients: Begin by washing your tomato and lettuce thoroughly to ensure they’re clean and ready to use.
  2. Build Your Base: Lay a crispy tostada on a plate, ready to be adorned with delicious toppings. Spread a generous tablespoon of beans evenly onto the tostada, creating a flavorful foundation for the rest of your ingredients.
  3. Add Freshness: Dice your tomato into small, vibrant cubes and scatter them atop the beans. This adds a burst of freshness and color to your tostada.
  4. Crunchy Goodness: Cut the lettuce into thin, crisp strips and layer them over the tomato, adding a satisfying crunch to each bite.
  5. Avocado Mash: Mash up some ripe avocado and generously spread it over the lettuce. Not only does avocado add a creamy texture, but it’s also packed with healthy fats!
  6. A Citrus Zing: Squeeze fresh lime juice over the entire tostada. The acidity of lime enhances the flavors and brings everything together harmoniously.
  7. Final Touch: Finish off your masterpiece with crumbling queso fresco on top. This Mexican cheese adds a slightly tangy flavor that perfectly complements the other ingredients.

Now that your Tostadas Deliciosas are assembled, it’s time for the best part – tasting! Encourage your children to explore the flavors and textures with each bite. With every crunch of the tostada, they’ll discover a symphony of tastes, from the creamy avocado to the tangy lime and everything in between.

We hope you and your little chefs have a blast creating and savoring these Tostadas Deliciosas together. Stay tuned for more culinary adventures from our CHEF Partnership program, where we inspire young minds one delicious bite at a time!
